Lembert Dome Trail is a 2.5 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Yosemite National Park, California that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is best used from April until October.
Enjoy scenic views of Tuolumne Meadows from the top of the dome. Lember Dome (9,450 ft.), located near the Tuolumne Meadows campground, is one of the best place to enjoy the views of Tuolumne Meadows. To hike Lembert Dome, you start from the Dog Lake parking lot on Tuolumne Meadows Lodge Road, follow the trail for Dog Lake at first, cross Tioga Road and continue hiking up the trail until you meet the junction for Lembert Dome. At the junction, continue hiking westward until you see Lembert Dome and use caution to scramble up to reach the top.
Started from the Lembert Dome parking at 8am and had the hike to myself (super special considering its summer time in Yosemite). The hike takes you up a good enough climb through the trees and is well marked. Dog Lake adds an additional .3 out and back from the main trail.
The view from the top was amazing!! I looped around to the left of the rock face at the top to summit. So glad I did this hike!!!
A very easy warm-up hike to get used to the high altitude of Tuolumne Meadows.
